Flexible Connectors

Flexible connectors prevent stresses due to expansion and contraction, isolate against the transfer of noise and vibration, and compensate for misalignment.

Thrust Restraints

Thrust restraints are used to counteract the discharge force created by fans during operation. Thrust restraints are used in pairs and best utilized when located on the centerline of the discharge outlet of the fan, bridging the flexible duct connector.
